Taking Action to Change Lives
For the past several years, Emmaus advocates have raised concerns about the severe shortage of high-quality Direct Support Professionals. Year after year, we have been lifting this issue to our legislators, insisting that this crisis receives the attention it deserves. And that advocacy is working!
This year, Governor Parson has recommended a HUGE investment in services for Missourians with developmental disabilities. This is a HISTORIC step that will help us stabilize our workforce, recruit new team members, and support our clients. But this is only the beginning, we encourage you to join us in our work to advocate for better rates on behalf of our clients.
